Choosing the Right-Sized Outdoor Kennel
Why is choosing the right-sized outdoor kennel important? When picking out dog kennels, you should consider your pet’s comfort. Kennels should be large enough to ensure that your dog has enough space to stand, lay down, and move around. Though you shouldn’t leave dogs cooped up all day, the kennel should be comfortable enough for them to spend periods of time there. A space that is too confined isn’t healthy for your dog, so it’s important to choose a kennel large enough.
For smaller dogs, you can opt for a small structure, as they won’t need the space that a large breed requires. You may find that our small 6 x 3 ft kennel is perfect for your small breed. For big dogs, you’ll need a large enough structure so they can move around. We have various dog kennels that suit medium to large-sized dogs. Our 14 x 8 ft kennel is one of our largest options available. This kennel is spacious enough to suit most breeds.
To determine the ideal size, you’ll need to consider the height and length of your dog. Measuring your dog is simple–determine the correct height and then add three to seven inches to the final measurement. The extra inches ensure your dog will have enough room to stand on its hind legs. Likewise, when determining your dog’s length, you’ll want to add around five to ten inches to the final measurement. With extra inches added to the measurement, you’ll have surety that your dog can stretch, wag its tail, and turn around comfortably.
Besides measuring your pet, you’ll also want to consider the size of your garden. You’ll need to have adequate space to accommodate an outdoor kennel. Typically, most people try to keep the kennel far enough away from the house so as not to deal with bugs or smells.
